Scientific Disciplinary Sector (SSD)

SECS-P/02 - ECONOMIC POLICY

Period

Primo semestre (lauree magistrali) dal Oct 3, 2022 al Dec 23, 2022.

Learning objectives

Classes will cover the central topics of development economics: the determinants of economic growth, technological progress and its implications for productivity, the distributive consequences of growth and human capital accumulation, inequality, and the effect of increasing openness to trade, regional integration and global imbalances, on these dimensions. Stylized economic models will be used to understand the functioning of the relevant markets (such as the labor market and the markets of goods and commodities) and to assess the role of public intervention on them (focusing on the role of education and health policies, redistribution and trade policies). Furthermore, the course will be strongly characterized by an “evidence-based” approach: data and public reports focusing on development issues (from the World Bank, IMF, OECD, for instance) will be critically assessed upon available scientific evidence. The main goal of the classes is to develop a scientific approach to the critical analysis of data and policies for development, which can be carried forward to analyzing and critically assessing the choices of single firms operating in developed and developing countries. Students seeking positions in firms and public institutes which are active on international markets will also: i) acquire competences that are needed to value the opportunities offered by countries and markets with which Italian firms are broadly interacting; ii) master the tools needed to analyze and critically assess the financial and economic scenario characterizing countries with different degrees of development; iii) be able to evaluate risks and opportunities offered by international markets in a global context. The classes will benefit from the active participation of international lecturers and experts from international organizations.

Learning assessment procedures

The exam is written and compulsory for all students. The exam lasts 90 minutes and consists of approximately 10 open questions covering the entire course program. The score of the questions varies according to their difficulty. In all cases, the student must demonstrate that they know how to use the tools learned during the course to motivate the answers given.
FOn a voluntary basis, students can also obtain an “assignment grade” which integrates the exam grade (without replacing it), based on two components:
1) A “group” component (min = 2, max = 3 people per group ), based on an “essay” that summarizes and comments on some working documents agreed with the teacher (for example, one or more chapters of the World Development Report). The essay is due on January 2023.
2) An “individual” component evaluated through participation in the course blog, in which each student is asked to elaborate on her class notes.

The “assignment grade” allows students to integrate the exam grade based on additional work to be completed during the semester. This possibility will be offered only for the 2023 winter exam session (two sessions).

Evaluation criteria

The exam grade captures the student’s ability in using the concepts and knowledge developed during the course as instruments to support and validate their answers. Answers to the exam question take the form of a short essay.
The “assignment grade” depends on the commitment that the student demonstrates during the semester in terms of:
- working on the additional readings list provided by the teacher.
- Understanding and contextualizing the readings, as well as criticizing them when needed.
- Exhibit academic writing skills.
- Developing and presenting to the class some of the topics covered in class.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The exam grade is based on a 31/30 scale. Each exam question receives a score that varies according to the level of difficulty of the question and the completeness, clarity and correctness of the answer provided. The exam grade is the sum of the scores obtained on all questions.

For students who wish to do so, there is an assignment grade rated on a 30/30 scale. The grade is composed as follows:
- Group component grade: 0-20
- Individual component grade: 0-10

The final grade of the exam is determined as follows:

Final grade = max {exam grade; 0.5 * exam grade + 0.5 * (group component grade + individual component grade)}.

- The exam passed if exam grade> = 17.5, regardless of the assignment grade.
- The maximum grade (30 cum laude) is obtained if final grade> 30.
- The possibility of benefiting from an assignment grade is limited to the first two exam sessions (winter session 2023).
- Those who decide not to use the assignment grade will get a final grade = exam grade.

Double degree

To contribute to the internationalization of the experience of students enrolled in the MSc in IEB, Double Degree agreements have been activated with the University of Bordeaux (FR) and with the University of Bamberg (D). Each agreement provides for the participation of a maximum of five students, therefore a total of (maximum) ten students can benefit from the experience.

Bordeaux 
Students selected for the Double Degree program with Bordeaux will spend the first semester of the second year at the partner university, during which they will participate in the Master Mention “Economie Internationale” - Parcours “Economie, banque et finance internationales”. Students will attend the  following courses in France (on the right the equivalent courses of the MSc in IEB):
Import/Export Techniques 8ECTS <---> International business law 9CFU
Growth and Development 7ECTS <---> International trade and economic development 9CFU 
International Trade and FDI 8ECTS <---> Export decisions, FDI, and global value chains 9CFU 
Strategic Analysis and Applications 7ECTS <---> Stage 3CFU 

Bamberg
Students selected for the Double Degree program with Bamberg, on the other hand, will participate in the Master of Science in European Economic Studies program, where they will attend the following courses:
- One course to be chosen in the MAEES1 Methods and Fundamentals module group:
Modul MAEES1.1 Advanced Microeconomics 6 ECTS
Modul MAEES1.2 Advanced Macroeconomics 6 ECTS
- Three courses (18 ECTS) with modules of the module groups MAEES Specialisation (of 6 ECTS each):
MAEES3 Internationale Wirtschaft (International Economics)
MAEES4 Empirische Mikroökonomik (Empirical Microeconomics)
MAEES5 Finanzwissenschaft (Public Economics)
MAEES7 Wirtschaftstheorie (Economic Theory)
MAEES8 Angewandte Wirtschaftsforschung (Applied Economic Research)
- 12 ECTS among the following Foreign Business Languages at master level:
German (for not German native speakers)
Business English
Business French
Business Italian (for not Italian native speakers)
Business Spanish
Business Russian
- 24 ECTS for thesis completion.

Requirements and selection procedure
Students regularly enrolled in the first year of the MSc in IEB can be admitted to the Double Degree programs. The call for applications will be published around September 2021 or later in the University web page on double degrees. The choice of students to be admitted is made during the first semester of the first year, through a multi-stage process:
- a selection of students based on the results achieved in their bachelor degree, on their CV and on a motivational interview. Following this selection, the ranking of students "admitted under condition" will be published;
- an ongoing confirmation of the above ranking, based on the academic achievement of the students in the first part of their studies at the University of Verona. Specifically, are confirmed the students "admitted under condition" which - at the end of the first semester of the first year - have achieved a weighted average score and a number of credits not lower than the average of the cohort of students enrolled in the first year (in the case of students’ transfers and career shortening, only the recognized exams for the first semester of the first year are taken into consideration).
The ranking of selected and confirmed students will be unique and the choice of destination - Bamberg or Bordeaux - will be made starting with the first classified student, then the second and so on.
Finally, the students selected and confirmed will participate in the call to obtain the Erasmus scholarships reserved for the assigned location.
